At least you will have a first hand account from one side in this conflict, but would you be willing to set aside your personal feelings and hear one from the other side seeking to kill your Nephews?
You'd need both to get the complete story.
Of course, you already know the story from the other side, right?
You got this enemy all figured out too, right?
In that case, let the bodies fall, and get-er-dun!

Well this true, this is why I read both sides of the arguments. I make up my own mind and not regurgitate whats been spoon fed by either side.
I read and pay attention to both sides. Yes. That's how one learns. By paying attention. Discounting the BS and try to get down to the facts.
Yes, Last I checked the Taliban were kicked to the streets by the Afghan Northern Alliance with the help of US/ NATO air power and they have been living in the hills of Afghanistan and bounce back and forth with ties in Pakistan. Who by the way have been aiding them and dragging their feet to fight them. Well, until recently now that the Taliban are getting serious in Pakistan.
For someone who is trying desperately to come off as knowledgeable on the topic you sure do make some rather simple stereotypes.
